Samsung Note 4 vs iPhone 6 Plus – Camera Comparison – updated

Today I have about 7 or so shots from the iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung Note 4. These were taken by a friend of mine who wanted to test each phone to see which one they preferred. The photos are completely unedited. If you want to view the full resolution, click through on the photos to my Flickr account, change the size to full resolution and pixel peep to your hearts contention. All the shots were taken from both cameras standing on the same spot. You will notice the different field of views from each phone. Panoramic shots – the Note 4 had a much longer sweep enabling it to take a much wider canvas. The 6 Plus has exposure correction as it takes the panoramic photos, but sometimes this ruins the shot as the change is noticeable. Just looking at the snaps as is, which do you prefer? Or are they really about equal. With both phones, there were hardly any duff photos taken. As they both use Optical Image stabilisation, this seems to help getting better shots.

Viewing order – In every shot it is iPhone 6 Plus first, then Note 4. At the end there are 3 Note 4 shots that have not got an iPhone 6 Plus equivalent. If you wish to see all the photos head over to my Flickr page – https://www.flickr.com/photos/gavinfabl100/ . Remember these aren’t full size images, but scaled down to save some bandwidth for those on mobile devices.

Remember, to view the full resolution of each, just click on photo to go to Flickr, then select largest file size to view full resolution shots. And with all these shots, my friend was standing in the same spot when snapping.

So the above shots are trying to represent a typical day out. Which shots do you prefer? 6 Plus or Note 4? Or is it a draw? 8mp vs 16mp in lovely sunny conditions! In all honesty, I think all of these shots are amazing.

Updated – I can’t believe this but the Note 4 was left with the camera file size at 6mp instead of 16mp. That really is incredible as that made the photos fairer but also showed the Note 4 could snap another 10mp worth of pixels as it’s max resolution is 16mp.

  1. Hey Gavin…GREAT stuff as always. It does seem like a draw with these photos. Maybe a little edge to the Note 4 for the ability to crop a bit. I decided to keep the Note 4 over the 6 Plus. I loved the 6 Plus. It was just that once you were all set up….that’s it. There was nothing left to tweak, adjust or learn. There is no real pushing the 6 Plus…it is what it is ( a real good smart phone). The Note 4 has been great to use. The least lag in any Samsung smart phone. Great camera in a lot of situations. I have been loving all of your recent Samsung posts. Looking forward to more!
